"A lawyer with his briefcase can steal more than a hundred men with guns." Mario Puzo


A Mafia Godfather finds out that his bookkeeper, Guido, has cheated him out of US$10,000,000.00.
His bookkeeper is deaf. That was the reason he got the job in the first place.

When the Godfather goes to confront Guido about his missing US$10 million, he takes along his lawyer who knows sign language.
The Godfather tells the lawyer: "Ask him where the money is!”
The lawyer, using sign language, asks Guido: “Where's the money?”
Guido signs back: "I don't know what you are talking about."
The lawyer tells the Godfather: "He says he doesn't know what you are talking about." 

The Godfather pulls out a pistol, puts it to Guido's head and says:
"Ask him again or I'll kill him!"
The lawyer signs to Guido: "He'll kill you if you don't tell him."
Guido trembles and signs back: "OK! You win! The money is in a brown briefcase, buried behind the shed at my Cousin Bruno's house.”

The Godfather asks the lawyer: "What did he say?" 

The lawyer replies: "He says you don't have the balls to pull the trigger." 

Don’t you just love lawyers?
